      So what would I use with what desktop if I wanted a lighterweight browsing experience? LXQt - Falkon for sure. Xfce - Pale Moon or Midori Cinnamon -Pale Moon Gnome - might as well try Gnome Web (Epiphany.) If that fails try Pale Moon.

      So to summarize my experiments with light browsers on the old Toshiba netbook: Dillo - launches but looks like cr^p and can't login to sites. Net Surf - launches but no cursor and looks glitchy. Gnome Web - seg faults, unusable Falkon - works great, browser of choice. Pale Moon - had to install a precompiled build but works well. Midori Next Generation - Had to remove old browser package, install precompiled build but seems to work OK.

      I have also discovered a new version of Midori which also exists as a precompiled binary in the AUR.I have installed that one as well. It seems to work OK. Posting from it now.

      Back on the Netbook where I installed Pale Moon via the compiled palemoon-bin. Works well. I can log in to SNF and post. htop shows around 700 MB RAM in use. Looks like Pale Moon is a keeper.
